Moat Vale Campsite is located within the wooded landscape of Netherby Estate. A quiet backwater land, more tranquil than the congested Lake District but handy for trips out to Hadrian’s Wall, the Nothern Lakes Dand the Galloway Coast. Carlisle city is 12 miles away and local facilities can be found in the village of Longtown, 3 miles down the road.
Netherby Estate is part of the Debatable Lands of the Anglo-Scottish Borders and evidence of the skirmishing can be found in the number of fortified buildings in the area, including the Hermitage Castle, Gilnockie Tower and Carlisle Castle
On the small holding are sheep, chickens and an extensive vegetable garden. Home produced eggs are available in season.
Do come and visit us, either as a base for touring around the area or as a handy stop over while heading north or south over the border.
Cyclists doing the Lands end to John o Groats are fairly freaunt visitors at the site , which is roughly at the hal way point. We are also a central loation for the 77 stanes series of montain bike trials of Dumfries and Galloway
There are numerous little used public rights of way through the farmland in the area, as well as picturesque riverside walks along the Border Esk.
Famous for it’s trout and salmon fishing, the Willow Pool on the Esk is less than a mile away. The campsite has a campfire area for cooking your catch of a balmy summer evening.
We are not far from Hadrians Wall, the City of Carlisle and Gretna Green
